The awareness of oneself as an artist, the identification of personal skills and assets are crucial for the development of one's activity.The relationship with one’s “vocation”, one’s own unique and unrepeatable artistic pathway, the real needs and authentic motions that distinguish our existence in a radical way and that, therefore, must be sought and fed incessantly.


  • Theoretical discussion: What does it mean to be an artist and a professional? Which are an artist's basic rights, needs, obligations?
  • Exercises of self presentation; experiences of multidisciplinary approach, exchange, collaboration with different artists.
  • Psychophysical activities will improve concentration and will create the correct dimension for interaction.


Active methodology, putting the accent on the participant's inputs and by giving them the possibility to exchange among peers. The trainer as an expert of that field acts as facilitator.
